Hi All, im looking to get a new printer, A3 borderless - just wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

Currently im leaning towards the canon i9550, its an 8 color printer which goes for about $800 AU

http://www.canon.com.au/products/printers/colour_bj_printers/i9950.html


The other question is with a printer like this should i be able to produce accurate quality/color proofs for my clients? Or will i still need to get proofs from my publisher.

Another printer on a similar level is the epson 1290 for roughly the same price

The Pixima printers, like the i9950, are very, very good printers. I have the i5000 borderless A4 printer, and I have yet ot have a complaint with it. It produces very high quality prints. Go for it, I say. Besides, if it's for a business purpose you can write it off on tax

Yeh i guess quality etc wasnt really the issue, i was wondering more if it can be used for proofs.

What sort of printers to publishers generally use for prints? Dont they need RIP stuff etc to get a relatively accurate colour proof?

Well i'm very impressed with the printer so far, its great. The CD printing is damn good too, great quality really - almost up with offset printing! Of course its not so vibrant as screen printing etc.

It takes under a minute to print on 1 cd, and does it direct to the cd without any labels etc
